Terrible news about the devastating fire. It's a while since we were there, but the kids loved it, especially going up the tower to see the famous bells. The word "iconic" is over-used these days, but can truly describe Notre Dame. Let's hope it can be rebuilt.

There is no reason why it can't be rebuilt but it's contents and long history are lost forever.
Very tragic indeed.

A French Billionaire has given 100 Million Euro towards the rebuild.

York Minster went up in 1984 as did Windsor Castle. Both rebuilt now to the point you probably wouldn't know.

Needs money and time and some very clever people.

Tragic. I have visited many times. A complete shock.
They managed to save a lot of the contents including the organ and the crown of thorns. It will be rebuilt. I remember visiting York minster after the fire and the amazing work that went into that. Ironically it may be a catalyst for bringing the French together after the recent problems. It is a symbol that unites both religious and non religious.
Finally, a big shout out to the sapeurs pompiers and a speedy recovery to the one seriously injured.
